<em>Salmonella</em> outbreak prompts Sydney egg recall

Sydney consumers are advised to discard or return Glendenning Farms eggs over concerns they may be causing food poisoning.

Eggz on the Run has voluntarily recalled Glendenning Farms brownshell eggs with best before dates 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24 and 29 September and 1 October 2018. The recall, which includes cartons (dozen) and bulk trays, is focused on small independent supermarkets and retailers in metro Sydney NSW.

The NSW Food Authority and NSW Health announced they are investigating 23 cases of Salmonella enteritidis in the Sydney area.

“The NSW Department of Primary Industries has issued a biosecurity direction on the farm to restrict movement of livestock, eggs, manure and disposables and order the disinfection and decontamination of equipment. This direction will be in place while further investigations are underway,” a statement from the NSW Food Authority said.

Customers are being encouraged to bin or return the product for a full cash refund, even without proof of purchase.

Symptoms of Salmonellosis include fever, headache, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. These usually appear between six and 72 hours after eating the contaminated food and can last for more than seven days.
